Try these Korean corn dogs and doughnuts in Richmond
Yes, that's right, only one of these has a hot dog inside.
What's happening: The other thing on a stick is a piece of mozzarella cheese.
Zoom in: Both are from Oh Mochi, a purveyor of Korean corn dogs and doughnuts on Franklin Street on VCU's Monroe Park campus.
- The one on the left is a ramen-encrusted corn dog.
- The one on the right is the mozzarella version, rolled in hot Cheetos.
Of note: Ned thoroughly enjoyed eating both, but recommends the hot dog option over the cheese.
Be smart: Eye-catching toppings aside, the key difference between a Korean corn dog and the American standard is the batter used to coat the dog.
- The Korean version typically uses a yeasted rice batter in place of the corn-based, baking powder-fueled mixture common in the U.S.
